I am having trouble making sense of these equations. Does anyone have any ideas? They were made by a Japanese scientist in the '90s and was looked into by the CIA. The CIA files are linked. I want to understand what Q represents in these equations.
Ok, I know Java, Soython, JS, a bit PHP, C and Bash.
Idk just wanted to learn a new lang, to replace all these soylangs I know, thought about Rust and Go.
What is your opinion on that? Should I go for Rust or Go?
>>14491 >but no one imposes them on me or publicly recommend taking this or that stance in any matter, let alone non-technical ones Why does that matter to you that much though? They can't really stop you from using it how you wish even if they want to.
>None of them is associated with any (((large corporation))). Same point as above. Also (assuming the language becomes successful) I'm pretty sure most corporate languages will split from the main branch.
While I will admit there are probably more sjws bitching in languages like Go and Rust, I don't think languages like C or Lisp are free from that either. Ada, pascal, and perl maybe, but that's because there are less things written in those languages for people to bitch about.
It's also a losing game in the long run since you're depending on SJWs being distracted by shiny new toys. The moment you have something very popular written in pascal you'll have SJWs interested in it.
>free of AIDS do you mean political shit you dislike or technical cruft? I'll admit I've heard good things about Ada (and pascal's probably fine), but
> Perl is a good dynamic scripting language that can do all that Python or Ruby can, and has a huge number of libraries. Perl is well known for having unreadable code. And considering python is a lot more popular it probably has more libraries.
>No need to give reasons for C and Lisp. I think C is good but I would really only use for shit that's simple and fast. Anything else would probably invite problems.
I've heard common lisp is fine, but again,
>They aren't good, however, to make dumbed-down software or easily integrate with botnets, which are the most common things in software today. The rest of the points were fair but I don't get this. Why wouldn't you want your software to be usable for others? If it's at the sake of functionality that's a problem, but you make it sound like software that's difficult to use is a good thing. If all I need to do is simple shit, even if I'm smart enough to figure out how to use your shit why would I waste time learning something that I could have done in much less time?
I don't care what the reason is there's only one serviceable implementation of these languages. I simply don't like using any kind of software where one particular group has leverage over everyone else. This wasn't so bad back in the 80's, because the software was so simple that if they tried to pull some shit, you could just write your own equivalent from scratch. But today most software is extremely complicated, and so are the toolchains. Which brings us to that other question: "Why wouldn't you want your software to be usable by others?" Well the answer is simple: I only care about my needs. Thus, I can choose whatever languages I wish and use any kind of interfaces that work best for me. Plus my code will never be distributed anywhere, as they're just projects I do for fun or to fulfill some personal needs. This might sound weird to you, but to me it's completely natural. When I was growing up and got to play with computers (early 80's), we didn't have Internet or even a modem (first time I used a modem was ~ 1992-93). You wrote stuff for the hell of it because it was fun, and then your code sat on cassette tapes, floppy disks, or sometimes even just a printout or written down by hand (because some computers I used back then didn't even have a storage device). Maybe times have changed, but I haven't. In fact, none of the modern software or games interests me whatsoever.
>>14496 >I don't think languages like C or Lisp are free from that either Lisp is full of faggots, but of a different kind, mostly harmless. Nothing in this world is free from the grips of Satan anon. Insanity is everywhere. There is a group called "Include CPP" whose goal is "a more welcoming and inclusive C++ community", organized by literal Jews and trannies. (How can that even work in practice, considering the nature of C++?) This is not on C++'s official website, not in the ISO Committee, not in any technical documents, not a CoC. It's not associated with the language itself, that's fine, just some mentally ill men and useful idiots doing their things. >there are less things written in those languages for people to bitch about >The moment you have something very popular written in pascal you'll have SJWs interested in it. They aren't popular because no (((large corporation))) sponsors, funds or endorses them. Ada or Pascal cannot become popular today. They don't save typing and don't allow you to use advanced Pajeet coding techniques such as doing everything as lambda expressions. They are not appropriate for the type of shit software that is made nowadays. >Why does that matter to you that much though? >do you mean political shit I mean political shit, regardless of what I dislike or like. Consider what would happen if for example PHP's website had "White Pride" banners on it, or some of its key people openly advocated Nazism in technical contexts. >Perl is well known for having unreadable code It's been part of an old culture. It was influenced by Shell script and uses lots of punctuation that can be hard to understand from the outside.
The darknet black market site DeepSea went offline for 15 days, and then came back online, people tried to recover their btc from escrow and couldn't, some claim they were able to. Some claim that it's been taken down by LE and being used as a honey pot to catch people. I don't know anymore about this than what I read in the comments section of the above link. but it seems wise to remain cautious and suspicious. I don't use this market nor do I endorse it.

It's actually Armbian (they use Ubuntu and Debian for upstream). This is 32-bit ARM Cortex-A7. I like old stuff, not new stuff. But I'm not gonna pay collector prices for a 30+ year old computer, so this is what I have instead.
I was used to use OpenBSD and Gentoo, but there is really little advantage when using any BSD compared to Linux. Artix just werks and I can do everything I need to do on it, while still satisfying my autism. Void is similarly good.
>>14507 The 90's is actually when the industry jews started pushing GUIs really hard, so they could get more nigger cattle to work their systems, as well as sell more computers and software to the public (hence Windows 95 replacing DOS altogether rather than remaining as an optional add-on). Their ultimate goal was, as always, de-skilling the industry, just as they did 100 years prior with factory workers. Search for the video "Human Resources - Social Engineering in the 20th Century" if you want to learn more about that.
Ok, people on here, help me. The pic is pretty unrelated, sorry for that, haven't found anything better on my pc, meh. I have been learning some programming and unix-stuff like 2 years ago, first I got into Soython, simply because it was the best option, at least in terms what I thought. Later I got into Webcringe, learning all kinds of JS-frameworks and PHP and later even Java. Recently I got into Common Lisp, C and proper Shell scripting. In these two years, I have written some tiny scripts, but nothing I would show something. I basically haven't done anything useful or something to be proud of so far. Am I really just too retarded? I am 14 atm, I know the rules, but this board is dead enough, as that I hope that it is ok for the mods, idk.

"The report points out that Zoom may be legally obligated to share encryption keys with Chinese authorities if the keys are generated on a key management server hosted in China. If the Chinese authorities or any other hypothetical attacker with access to a key wants to spy on a Zoom meeting, they also need to either monitor the internet access of a participant in the meeting, or monitor the network inside the Zoom cloud. Once they collect the encrypted meeting traffic, they can use the key to decrypt it and recover the video and audio."

Linux is a meme operating system for meme people, literally everyone I know that considers themselves a "serious Linux user" is either completely retarded or just a living Reddit-Meme on legs with an extra bit of cancer on top. Why do freeshits think they're hot shit for using an unusable and unmaintainable piece of shit and getting on everyone's nerves with it?
>>14376 Not to shit on your efforts, as they are commendable, but if pic attached is your machine, then your autism levels are truly unimaginable. Choosing Ubuntu for a bloat-free OS is the most retarded thing I've ever heard and I remember my Xorg/LXDE setup using less RAM during normal usage, which kinda (but not completely) defeats the point.
>>14408 My main concern was hardware support, so that's why I'm using this Ubuntu 16.04 (but it's actually an Armbian build). I tried some others, like for example Devuan, but had problems. In fact, I'm not even going to upgrade to the 18.04 release because from reading the Armbian forums it seems like VGA is no longer supported, and I bought this board specifically because it's got a native VGA port that I've got attached to an old 5:4 LCD monitor. I don't want HDMI, or widescreens, or even the DRM kernel crap. Here I use the old school fbcon driver at 640x480 and a Codepage 437 VGA font. That's the closest I can get to an old 486 DOS computer without spending lots of money, and still remaining practical (I can occasionally run the modern firefox bullshit whenever I need to).
Out of those processes >>14376 links2 is the big memory hog. It uses tons of memory for cache, but that's fine because that's exactly how I want my memory used. I also have some tmpfs setup for /dev/shm, /run, /run/lock, and /tmp (in fact half the computer's memory is available for /tmp, which I use as a staging area for downloaded files, for compiling stuff, or doing various things that involve lots of filesystem I/O).
That said, the modern Linux software seems pretty bloated to me, compared to how it was on Slackware in 1995. Even though this is a 32-bit ARM, a freshly started lynx process consumes 8088 KiB (of which half are RES). That wouldn't even have fit on my 486, which initially had only 4 MB when I installed Linux the first time. But I could still use Lynx back then without swapping, so obviously things have changed a lot. And just inspecting the lynx binary shows it's linked to a bunch of crap, some of which I'm not sure wtf it does.
>>14409 Oh wait, it looks like that libp11-kit is a freedesktop.org/gnome framework bullshit. No wonder Lynx is bloated now! They only make shitty bloated crap. I would eradicate all that junk off my computers if I could do it easily. Of course that's impossible because Firefox uses that junk.
As the subject says. It's been entered into their custom "bitch at the user with a popup until they disable it" database. To be fair to the developer, he has solid reasons for his stance. I'll try to summarize as there is a lot of misinformation and emotion out there fogging the issue.
1) The Palemoon project does not have enough developer juice to debug other software and addons.
2) Various users: "[website] does not work with Palemoon. Fix your shit, Moonman!"
3) Moonman: "Known issue. Stop being morons and disable NoScript. Thank you, and have a nice day."
4) Various users: "We did. Same problem. Fix your shit."
5) Moonman: "Oh. That's an actual issue with Palemoon then. I'm on it!"
6) Much hacking and cracking and time and talent are expended to no effect. Surprise! NoScript does not follow the standard of letting go of the browser when disabled. It lingers on. It has to be completely uninstalled with an added cache clearing operation on top of that.
7) Moonman: "It's NoScript. Get rid of it. Have a nice day."
8) Various users: "No. FIX YOUR SHIT!"
9) Moonman: "Crush. Kill. DESTROY!"
If you roll with my simplification you can see his point.
I have two observations. First, quite a few sites have a technical support checklist that runs like this: "What browser are you using? Palemoon? Oh good! We have two fixes you may choose from. One, use another browser. Two, go away and do not come back."
>>14308 Well, there seems to be some awareness and positivity for non-gui command line browsers. Lynx and the like.
UnGoogled Chromium is also viable. What the project needs a little more of are system package manager repositories. Even more so, extension management killed my enthusiasm. However, the "chromium-web-store" appears to have finally solved that problem. At a guess, UGC would probably be our board's other recommendation for general use.
Dunno. I ran UGC for a few months with a variety of annoyances, but absolutely none of the issues you are seeing. The question was what would this board recommend, of which my reading of the board suggests a pretty limited short list of browsers are acceptable, a la spyware.neocities.org. Personally, I'm a lot more flexible with my own choices, although I have to spend some time changing the internal settings and getting the right addons for other less-than-perfect privacy degraded browsers. And, in any event, I came back around to Palemoon.
Oh, and, in a bit of a facepalm moment, it turns out I've been using nMatrix on all but one of my PM installs. Not uMatrix. So my entry bitching about the status of uMatrix is all of a nothing burger. Apparently there's been viable forks of uMatrix having gone mainstream for a long time now. Like, long before Raymond Hill's announcement. So, with that admission, it's time to get me back to derping about on dese interwebz...

I've told this to people before but they usually think I don't know what I'm talking about because they can't comprehend something being downloaded onto their computer without them clicking a download button.
I know these OS-threads are becoming more boring over time, but I just wanted to ask you guys for advice. I have used Gentoo some time ago, 9 days to be exact, due some bad kernel-config, it broke for me and I just switched to Arch. Arch is ok, but not quite what I would like to have from an OS. Do do not have any problem with systemd, like I do not prefer it, but I am ok with it * existing * in my machine. I have tried OpenBSD once on hardware and several times in a VM. All my work on a computer is basically just done with Vim, Firefox/Icecat and some C compiler, so I do not require any special software.
1. Is it true that OpenBSD has problems with drivers? I will run it on my desktop, so that is probably not a problem at all.
2. Do you use it? Why do you use it? Why do you not use it?
3. Some important things I should know ( I will run it with dwm and st probably?
4. Can I operate it basically like some Linux system?
OpenBSD is easier to manage than Linux, IME (and I've been using Linux since 1995 and OpenBSD a few years later). The system is tuned to be user-friendly, not idiot-friendly. Their documentation (website FAQ, man pages) are good and useful.
However, the driver support isn't as wide as Linux. On my 64-bit ARM SBC, I recently had to switch to Armbian because OpenBSD doesn't support the onboard graphics, and neither Firefox nor Chromium function properly now. I used to be able to at least run one of those over ssh -X, but starting with OpenBSD 6.7 that no longer worked, and I'm guessing it's because the newer version of those browsers bail out when they don't find a GPU (at least that's what the error messages seemed to indicate).
So anyway, try it and if your browser works, then you're good. The little stuff like dwm and st will work fine with just the sofware renderer (either wsfb or vesafb).
And if it doesn't work on your hardware, you can still try NetBSD. I haven't tried NetBSD on this board yet, but it's not clear that would help me because I've only got 2 GB RAM, and I'm pretty sure that's not enough to build Rust (dependency for Firefox). Well maybe they have packages anyway, since they cross-compile stuff (OpenBSD doesn't, they only compile directly on the target hardware). I guess I'll try it at some point.
>some bad kernel-config, Having screwed up your kernel config is a bad reason not to like gentoo though. That's a linux thing rather than what makes gentoo shit.
> Is it true that OpenBSD has problems with drivers With openbsd (or freebsd) you might have to make some goofy choices to get wifi running on your laptop.
I can't remember where CPU threading is at, or what is happening with graphics cards. I would make sure that your needs are met with the current state of things, because just waiting is going to be a less reliable strategy for ever getting drivers. OpenCL is never going to happen (the trick is, not wanting it to.).
> systemd, like I do not prefer it, but I am ok with it * existing * in my machine You don't want systemd existing in your machine. Or pulseaudio or anything like that. It's not that it's uncool to use, it's that the windows model of operating systems, including stuff like privilege escalation, and everything else, is not good. Not good meaning very bad. Extremely aggressive promotion of something like systemd should strike you as powerfully glowy.
> 3. Some important things I should know ( I will run it with dwm and st probably? Not having decadent package management does suck.
I like fvwm rather than dwm. OpenBSD's stock fvwm needs your own customisation to be better though. I'm not really big on suckless. Change my mind.
Instead of going out of the way and making extra unnecessary effort to write a garbage fail web site, why not stick with standard HTML forms and POST and always Just Work on any fucking browser made in the last 20 years?
